Charlie Rose Reportedly "Doesn't Seem to Fully Get" the Severity of His Sexual Misconduct
December 4, 2017
Despite being ousted from "CBS This Morning" for alleged sexual misconduct, Charlie Rose doesn't appear to be worried about his future.
Sources close to the 75-year-old news veteran told Page Six that "it hasn't quite hit him yet" that his career is likely over after a handful of women came forward with allegations that he sexually harassed them over the years.
"He doesn't seem to fully get that what he's done is wrong and that he likely won't recover from this," a source told the outlet.
The reveal comes a week after Rose told paparazzi that his actions were "not wrongdoings."
Not only that, but it also appears as though he's been able to go on about his normal life outside of work despite the reveal about his past. According to Page Six, the television personality has been eating at his usual jaunt, the upscale Upper East Side eatery Le Bilboquet, where he was spotted "dining solo."
"He was greeted like a king," a source said. "I was surprised."
The restaurant's manager said that he "was greeted the same way he's always greeted when he comes here."
The same can be said for Matt Lauer, whose situation is remarkably similar to Rose's. Lauer was fired from "CBS This Morning" rival the "Today" show one week after Rose was fired from his morning show, following a complaint of sexual misconduct that was reported to NBC News.
The manager of Lauer's favorite restaurant, Fresco by Scotto, reportedly told TMZ that he's more than welcome to still dine at the establishment, saying that the Lauers "are like family." Lauer ate there on Thanksgiving last month.
Despite being welcome there, Lauer may not be showing up to the restaurant anytime soon. He's resurfaced a couple of times out in East Hampton with his family, avoiding the media attention of being in the city.
That being said, he made sure to be photographed meeting up with a famous lawyer, as well as wearing his wedding ring amid reports that his wife jetted off to Europe.
